were terrific, some weren't. my honest i opinion, i think kathleen sebelius didn't understand this. she got a lot of mumbo jumbo people explaining it and said things that were misleading. >> listen, i'm sorry, look, we had a variety of newspaper reports saying his staff did know. they had a big argument what he should say and how to describe this. the political people basically came down hard on you've got to make this very simple and very reassuring and that's the way we'll sell this program. i just do not believe that the president had no knowledge of that. it's so fundamental to the program about how you pay for this program. >> in terms of accountability, david, the president can say the buck stops with me. of course it does. this is the president and his major plan. why does he not fire kathleen sebelius? surely a head has to roll and she's the obvious head. >> well, i believe in due course a head will roll. >> her head? >> i would assume at some discrete interval she will find a way to leave. i don't think they should humiliate her. i don't think it's hers. this is a white house t

picture of a keg. >> that was republican congressman grilling kathleen sebelius this week. he was referring to an ad campaign. this features a college student doing a keg stand captioned don't tap into that beer money to cover your medical bills. joining me is adam fox, director of the strategic management for the colorado consumer health initiative. adam, it's good to have you here. what was your reaction when that happened on capitol hill? when the congressman was trying to get kathleen sebelius to either give her approval or disapproval of this style of ad? >> well, you know, i don't think -- it really doesn't have anything to do with the secretary, because it wasn't coming from colorado's state-based marketplace much less the federal marketplace. so she really had no idea that this was going to be happening. this was really something that we were doing to try to raise awareness among young adults. >> all right. so connect for health colorado says 3,164 people enrolled as of october 29th. explain to us the campaign and the minds behind this. obviously you look like a young
two. health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius went before lawmakers today where she was grilled by senators about the disastrous obama care rollout. they held her feet to the fire. ♪ >> in the last five weeks, access to health care.gov has been a frustrating experience. >> it is simply inexcusable that the members of this committee were not told earlier that these problems were occurring. >> people are angry. millions of americans are scared. >> you have been misleading the american people. the president has. over and over again. >> we know lying to congress is a crime. unfortunately, lying to the american people is not. >> more people are losing their insurance than are signing up on the website. they are being directed to a website that doesn't even work. >> i want you to burn their fingers and make them pay. >> it's impossible to do something in this administration that gets you fired. it's impossible. >> we made a promise to ensure no one ever went broke just because they got sick. you, madam secretary, must make good on that promise. >> you have said america s

should do at this point? >> the democrats? i think that kathleen sebelius and president obama should send the house republican has giant gift basket with a big shiny red bow on top for their performance this week. it's pretty clear that republicans seem to have a penchant for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory and i would say this week was no exception. it's clear that there are some problems with the rollout of the health care law, particularly obviously with healthcare.gov. but the one thing americans were not inclined to do was shut down the government over the health care law, and right now they might have been inclined to support hearings to find out what were the actual problems. but they're not willing to do was see it become part of a witch hunt or monkey court. that's why we're seeing support for the law go up and support for republicans drop to a low. >> having said that, what do you think the democrats should do next? >> i think they should try to get exactly what they were doing, which they should try to get to the bottom of the problems with healthcare.gov. and they sh
to have this website fixed by november the 30th. very different tone from kathleen sebelius who talked on a conference call from reporters later in the day. she said this website is up and running, open for business and people are enrolling now. a big tone difference here between park and sebelius. maybe a divergence of strategy here in terms of what they're trying to set as expectations for the end of this month. >> or maybe park knows what he's talking about and sebelius doesn't. >> park is the guy -- >> he's on the line. >> he's the guy they've put in charge of this office. he's the one sleeping in his office in the days leading up to the rollout. even republicans give him deference on the technical questions. he's the guy who knows what he's doing. why wasn't he involved earlier on. >> right. like a grownup. eamon, stay with us. hang on. joining us health care experts, bosh lichefsky. and avik roy. "how medicaid failed." is that true? >> that's the under appreciated thing. medicaid enrollment is huge. that's huge for the fiscal associations in the states. they're going to take some
are not going to do that. neil: what do you think of your successor, kathleen sebelius, do you think she should go? >> i don't think that is up to me to say. neil: go ahead. >> no, no, she has a lot of problems and, i think you know, she needs to try to find a way to solv some of the problem. neil: but she is not, i am not trying to target her but she is in charge of department in charge of biggest rework. and fairly or not she botched it roll out either she was not prepared for it or they were not prepared with key i-t people or medical people, it is a sloppy debut, in private enterprise she would be out. >> yes, she would, when we rolled out part d he tested everything, week after week, any time we had a problem, we retested it, they just didn't do that. as a result they had a roll out that was not very nice. and solved -- or solved any of the problem. neil: that is putting it mildly, tommy thompson thank you, sir. >> neil thank you. neil: is it me or when you look at washington and politicians, if there plenty out there, they will find a way to spend it that is why president clinton a let'si
of incoherrence going on. we heard deinousiation from kathleen sebelius and jay carney saying that the upton bill is dangerous and damaging to the market and infeasible logistically and then yesterday, the president announced a fix where he is imposing by decree most of what the upton bill accomplishes. it is puzzling and the president's credibility is shot on this and he earned every bit of this problem. >> the numbers on the screen are to allow the vote. the democrats vote numbers are not on the upton bill but we'll bring that to you. julie, we understand today, the president is meeting with the ceo's and executives from the insurance companies and shbt shouldn't he have done that sonar. yesterday when he came out with the fix. they put out a letter actually the president's fix threatens to destabilize the market. >> as i said in the beginning, i am not supportive of the president's behavior and no excuse to allow the debacle it got to and no means am i suggesting that the president is on top or the white house or people working for him did a good job implementing the signature accomplishments.
numbers would be really bad, really weak, because that's what kathleen sebelius was saying. they have tried to low ball it as much as they can or inoculate against the numbers. what else can they do? >> not much else they can do. maybe release trend data. maybe they will show in the final week of october they finally saw as the web improved, going up. can feel better about you have 36 federal exchanges producing 50,000 enrollees and you have about 14 state-run exchanges because we do not have numbers out of california producing about the same. we know state exchanges working a lot better as far as website were concerned than federal ones. they may be able to take heart in that. they will have a much larger enrollment on medicate, that is performing level. my guess is they will be able to talk in those terms. the real key is going to be who are these enrollees. they need young, healthy people, the insurance companies do, for this to work. they can't just have it be folks with health problems, big users of the health system, to be the ones who are likely to be the early signees. that's
for those democrats to the support. earlier today, health and human services secretary, kathleen sebelius told reporters since october 1, 106,185 people have enrolled. 79,000 enrolled through state exchanges. and about 27,000 enrolled through that federal exchange. that has the had so many problems. that is about 21% of what the obama administration had expected to enroll before the exchanges were open. another 975,407 people have completed applications for insurance but have not yet made the purchase. many of those people are shopping for family plans. and the administration estimates that is coverage for 1.5 million people. an additional $396,261 people have signed up for medicaid. secretary sebelius insisted today enrollment under the affordable care act is comparable to early days of enrollment under the health care reform law that massachusetts enacted in 2006 under governor romney. >> we can reasonably expect the numbers will grow substantially over the next five months as they did in massachusetts which enrolled only .3%. or 123 people in its first month. we know from experience in
.gov not functional. kathleen sebelius met with some of the so-called navigators in south florida, the website went down. >> this is a disaster. we have asked the american people to behave differently. when was the last time we asked the entire country to do something differently. now doing that it better be right and we clearly know it has not been. my concern is the war of anecdotes going forward. i can't get my old insurance. or i have cancer are so much more intense, than the positive anecdotes. so that's my big concern. the only shot the president has is and people won't be happy with it is what i call a five year narrative. two things will be happening. we'll lower the growth in health care costs which we're starting to see and more people will have insurance. but this is a five, ten year proposition. won't make people happy today. this at this point is only map. >> you can be right. the fundamental problem for him is what happens with democrats in the senate who are up for reelection. we might see in three or four years but that's not fast enough for democrats in the house or senate. the web
ways, torte reform. the president brought in kathleen sebelius ahead of the trial association for 11 years. we need torte reform so the doctors don't have to order too many tests. the pre-existing conditions, i think, should be pooled to an assigned risk where they have to pay more, similar to what is current. i was able to get insurance when i was younger but the state required the insurance companies provide that pool. i'd also like to agree with the gentleman from pennsylvania about the federal reserve. i wonder if most americans see that it's a board of international bankers that decide our interest rates. host: reid, we have a lot of topics there. let's have the congressman respond. guest: reid, let's start with medical liability. you mentioned that. when the health care law was first being driven through congress in 2009, i remember being summoned to the white house, abdur-rahim was the chief of staff. he had -- rahm emanuel was the chief of staff. he had me and some other republicans up to chat and i raised the issue of medical liability reform in that meeting and rahm said we
how many americans have signed up for obama care. hhs secretary kathleen sebelius confirming just a short time ago that the initial enrollment numbers are woefully short of the administration's targetnd far below even their lowered expectations. i'm lou dobbs. >>> good evening, everybody. the number is 106,000. that's how many americans have enrolled in health care plans in the state and federal exchanges through the first month of obama care, just a fifth of what administration officials had projected before the launch of healthcare.gov and the opening of the exchanges. to make matters worse, the federal exchanges operating in 36 states accounted for only 27,000 of those successful enrollments. 80,000 originated in the state-run insurance exchanges. on a conference call this afternoon, secretary sebelius revealed the embarrassingly low number, but then opened herself and the administration up to outright ridicule by calling those numbers consistent with what massachusetts, a state of only 6.5 million people, experienced in its initial rollout of romney care. sebelius also did not
-election. but senator landrieu, she voted for this law. and they said look at the federal register, kathleen sebelius put all the regulations in place that will actually make all the grandfather laws meaningless, she voted against him. so did all of the others, now, when they come out and say they're shocked, shocked, let me fix it for you. >> it doesn't matter whether they're believed or not. the fact is, they want to do something, they're feeling frustrated, happy people don't tend to call their senators. so it is not surprising the feinstein numbers are 37-18, as james pointed out, the overwhelming majority of the people are going to do better under this law. and the president is trying really hard to fix it and he needs to be given a little bit of time. the party can't panic -- >> that is one thing he doesn't have right now is time. people are about to lose their insurance come january first, if they don't have replacement insurance there is a lot of questions about who will take care of them and their families. coming up, one questionable ad and one angry lawmaker, he is asking did really change
find your social security number -- >> last month chairman issa subpoenaed kathleen sebelius for documents related to the rollout. let's just say he hasn't been happy with the response. >> to date, hhs has not produced a single responsive document to this committee. in contrast, the committee has received far more cooperation, transparency and document production receiving over 100,000 relevant documents from the private sector, from contractors working on this project, the very contractors who were blamed on day one as their fault, not the single political appointees fault, not obama's fault. >> it has certainly been a rough go for the president lately. to add to the pile on, you have one of the loudest voices in the democratic party essentially siding with republicans on one part of obama care. thts what bill clinton said yesterday in an interview, even if it takes a change in the law, the president should honor the commitment and let them keep what they got. this in my mind continues to feed public trust. on a law that is already unpopular. you're looking at me, smiling at
for the debacle. i'm responsible. >> reporter: kathleen is h sebelius endured nearly four house of questions in the white house. >> nothing that has been released has shown that we're trying to do something illegal. >> reporter: and it was a director of national intelligence james clapper and nsa chief general keith alexander fielding the tough questions about surveillance and spying in another congressional meeting this week. >> some of this reminds me a lot of the classic movie "casa bank can, my god, there is gamble going on here. it's the same kind of thin thing{^l" ^}. >> reporter: does the president know as much as he should, and is he in control of his administration. as he reaches for the legacy of a successful second term, is he staying above the fray. here to discuss president obama's second term and the rosenberg. he was an adviser to former president bill clinton. in new york, jeff lefkowitz isn't to president obama, and served as bush administration envoy to north korea. and author of recent book "jockeying for the american presidency: the political opportunism." you worked in t
for so long now. 26,794. health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius is releasing these numbers right now in a conference call with reporters and telling reporters that nearly 400,000 people have been determined to be eligible for medicaid or the children's health insurance program. medicaid was expanded as part of obama care. these numbers have been a closely guarded secret by the administration. they have struggled in the last few weeks to explain the severe technical difficulties that users have found on healthcare.gov and we see with only 26,794 individuals being enrolled, those numbers affected by the disastrous rollout of this website. we're bringing you complete coverage as the administration finally releases these numbers. here with me, our chief political analyst, gloria borger, dana bash, and jim acosta is outside the white house. gloria, let's start with you. what do you make of these numbers? about 27 million visitors to the health care exchanges. and over 100,000 enrolled in both the federal and state exchanges. but still, only 26,794 able to enroll through healthca
people have a lot of thoughts, but i have some, too. kathleen sebelius made all kinds of promises, she's broken every one of them. she's become part of the fantasy land villains of disney world in some way. she can't get anything right. nancy pelosi said they're still looking through and trying to figure out what obamacare will be. but how about this guy, donald berwick? he's the former cms administrator. he was the guy that was speaking in favor of english, of british, of health care. he had written about the importance of rationing. he's not there anymore. now he's running for governor. he put us in the dumper big, big time. >> he wanted to be governor of what state? >> massachusetts, i think. >> perfect. >> be careful. not good. >> there is somebody we've seen on television tangling with megyn kelly a couple of nights. you suggest ezekiel emmanuel. >> he had a meltdown on megyn kelly and said that somehow it was a self-fulfilling prophecy and that fox was responsible for the web site not going up and the numbers not working out at all. >> how did we do that? >> how about dennis mcdo
? @martha maccam up and@bill hemmer. martha: he grilled kathleen sebelius on the holes he saw in terms of putting in your information and he seems to be right. >> when the experts come on in front of that committee and say get down. better to start over. martha: shocking information that a crucial jobs report was manipulated to make president obama look good just before the election. the unemployment rate went from 8.1 to 7.8. it was a huge boost at the time for the president because it looked like the jobs market was starting to turn around. some people believed it did in the ensuing month. it became a major talking point throughout the 30 days of the campaign. >> this morning we found out the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office. after losing 800,000 jobs a month when i took office. our businesses added 5.2 million new jobs the past two years. friday we found out the unemployment rate has fallen from 8.2% to 7.8%, the lowest since i took office. we created jobs and we are making progress. march report census bureau asked the inspector general to look i
. host: kathleen sebelius. caller: yeah. it embarrasses me. i want to kind of change parties, but my grandfather, father, everybody in my family is a republican. they always have been. i'm kind of ashamed of them. the only republican i like now is john boehner, and i used to like paul ryan, but every time i see paul ryan, like the clip you had earlier i watched, paul ryan reminds me of john boehner. they are kind of the same. i used to think they were both the smartest republicans. i liked them the most. but they just don't understand with the latino votes, it will never be high for them ever, and i don't think they have a high african-american vote, they do white peoplene blow, they have the crazy white people blow. i can see where the -- people vote. i can see where they're going down. they have always needed to go moderate. if they have gotten moderate from the beginning and not gotten in talks with the tea party -- host: you might be interested in a piece on the cover of politico's new magazine, the cover story is locked in the cabinet -- the worst job in barack obama's washingto
for obamacare still being built. >> yeah. >> apparently it's not complete. >> for some reason, kathleen sebelius and the president of the united states made their second deadline by november 30th. the second they said that, i thought, wait. the guy you brought in to fix it says it's worse than we thought! why would you pick out an arbitrary date right after thanksgiving and say, that's when it will be fixed? now nobody thinks that date is going to mean anything. >> it would be optimal. >> right. >> i remember them saying optimal function by the end of november. >> and keep in mind, you got to be signed up by the end of the year. so they figured, we should give people at least a one month opportunity. but now kathleen sebelius says the end of this month, not a deadline. quote, the 30th of november is not a magic go, no-go date. it is a work of constant improvement. what's interesting is she was down in florida yesterday. she was speaking at florida tech college in orlando and it's kind of sad because there she was talking about how it's working. we've had a few problems. she's walking amongst som

who issued that subpoena for kathleen sebelius. >> that's right. >> she already testified wednesday. what's he hoping to get now? >> he wants more documents. house oversight and government reform committee is one panel led by republicans among many that has been grilling hhs and hoping to get a load of documents that describe even just the first days of meetings about how many people had enrolled. they're really drilling down and hoping to get a level of detail. they feel hhs has not been spoonsive quickly enough. hhs says say they were impacted by the government shutdown and many of these who initial document requests happened when staff was on furlough. issa took this big step and decided to issue a subpoena. >> okay. elise vee beck and perry bacon junior, thank you both. >>> tact and fiction. the myths and truths about obama care. that's ahead. ♪ [ chicken caws ] [ male announcer ] when your favorite food starts a fight, fight back fast with tums. heartburn relief that neutralizes acid on contact and goes to work in seconds. ♪ tum, tum tum tum tums! they always have. they alw
to throw somebody under the about us? is it the kathleen sebelius? someone does have to be blamed for the president. the president says the buck stops with me. it's on me. are people fatigued of hearing that? do they want to see the president say this person is to blame and it's not just the buck stops here? >> i'm not sure they want to fire somebody, but they sure as heck want the government in better hands. and they want some serious adults who are in charge of things who are accountable that they can looking to with some sense of okay, we're in a much better place. let me go back to the reagan example. you know, he brought in a whole new team after iran-contra. he brought in howard baker as his chief of staff, ken duberstein as a deputy. brought in colin powell to be his national security advisor. he brought in a new lawyer who was we respected. in that case, the president understood -- it's not a question of firing people. it is a question of showing that the government, you can trust the government. he's got a fresh team. i think this president needs to bring in a couple of p
. kathleen sebelius came to the committee to say that everything was ready to go. here is the issue, if you outlaw the kind of insurance that people actually have, they will not be able to keep those plans. the law was passed three years ago and now they are surprised? congressman paul ryan last night, campaigning for terry branstad, with an eye on running in 2016. this is a headline from jonathan in "the new york times," "some democrats feel exposed." we will get your reaction to what they wrote this morning. for the democrats across the country, the reversible political fortunes in the last month as in head spinning. republicans were contending with voter fury in mid-october over the government -- government shutdown, but now over obamacare republicans have found their voice. guest: if you are a democrat who represents a conservative district, you live your entire service in fear. so, you see those democrats, the democrats who voted for the republican proposal in the house, by and large they tend to be people from conservative or closely matched districts. what is justhave the misimpressi
was? henry chiou was asked, by the way, how many times did you meet with kathleen sebelius? not often. >> periodically. when was the last time? >> during the shut down. >> so you didn't meet with her during the debauchle of the rollout? here there is no brain trust ge? we also found out that this cost $600 million, which is an incredible number, and yet it doesn't work. >> it doesn't. and the fact that one month in, so few people have signed up, it's only 2% of the 7 million target that they were aiming for. what's interesting -- elisabeth, you were absolutely right. there is some kind of legalese used there, not surprisingly, where it was only people who selected a plan. in other words, went through the process and then you selected a plan. you didn't necessarily have to have paid for it yet, which means they might not actually wind up on the rolls. but meanwhile, ezekiel manuel, the brother of rahm emanuel, is one of the architects of this affordable care act. he was on with megyn kelly last night and he made it very clear, she tried to make it clear using his own words and testimon
and reported on. we'll hear the facts. we do know kathleen see breel yus, secretary sebelius has already said they are going to be low. what does that do to the discussion in moving forward with this deadline looming of november 30th and today the testimony being that the vast majority of people will be able to get on the website but we cannot guarantee 100%. >> i think everybody agrees the website situation is absolutely unacceptable. even if it was running perfectly, we would expect the enrollment numbers at this point in time in the affordable care act through the exchange to be very low. we know that based on the experience they had in massachusetts where at the state level they implemented a very similar plan. it shouldn't surprise anybody even if the website were up and running perfectly, most people take a little bit of time to shop around and don't need their final selection until the deadline gets near. so yes, we've got to get this website up and running because right now people aren't able to figure out what their alternatives could be. but even if it were running perfectly, you wo
